'Letters To Juliet'
Where to begin. 'Letters To Juliet' is one of my all time favourite movies, the love story, the location and the emotional input into the film.
"Letters to Juliet is a 2010 American romantic drama film starring Amanda Seyfried, Chris Egan, Vanessa Redgrave, Gael García Bernal, and Franco Nero. This was the final film of director Gary Winick. The film was released theatrically in North America and other countries on May 14, 2010. The idea for the film was inspired by the 2006 non-fiction book, Letters to Juliet, by Lise Friedman and Ceil Friedman, which chronicles the phenomenon of letter writing to Shakespeare's most famous romantic heroine."
I'm not usually the type of person that will buy DVD's just for the sake of it, I will only buy it if I really enjoy the film. And in this case I loved it! Even though the film came out over 2 years ago, when seeing it at the cinema I fell in love but every time I would go into HMV or CEX it was never in stock (explain this to me!). But finally it was there, strait away I picked it up and headed for the checkout!
To Sum up the film in a nut shell, without giving anything away: When a young American, played by Amanda Seyfried, travels to the city of Verona she joins a group of volunteers who respond to letters to Juliet seeking advice about love. After she answers one letter dated from 1957, she inspires its author, played by Vanessa Redgrave, to travel to Italy in search of her long-lost love, which sets off a chain of events that will bring a love into both their lives unlike anything they have ever imagined.
